Fallen Furniture

Fallen Furniture | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Using reclaimed, authentic aircraft parts, from both military and civilian aircraft steeped in history, Fallen Furniture take pride in exploring the most innovative ways to breathe new life into these remarkable feats of engineering to design and create pieces of art and furniture.

Each piece of Fallen Furniture is meticulously crafted with an emphasis on originality and personality, resulting in a distinctive and decorative tribute to aviation heritage and engineering, guaranteed to intrigue, to captivate, and to inspire conversation in any home or place of business.

With a strong belief in design as applied art – there to be used as well as admired – inspiration is drawn from a number of different periods: from the Art Deco movement of the early 1900s to the Parisian craftsmen creating robust industrial furniture and lighting in the 40s, to the 21st century eco design movement.

A design process and ethos has been born that centres on celebrating a single, beautifully engineered aircraft part and marrying it with an eclectic mix of sustainable metals, woods and textiles to create a truly unique product of elegance, functionality and modernity.

Working from a restored 17th century building on the outskirts of the creative heritage city of Bath, a strong focus on British manufacturing and craftsmanship is adopted, with all elements of production based in Britain. This enables complete quality control over every piece that leaves the workshop.

WideWalls

WideWalls | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Widewalls started off with a heartfelt passion for urban art. Everything they revolved around artists that fascinate them. They became the center of their activity. From this basis branched four segments that build the frame for Widewalls. They launched Widewalls with the street art intervention event in an abandoned ice-parlor on Mallorca. Their web segment was the predestined continuation of urban art involvement. The blog and magazine sections feature the latest news from the urban art world. From this evolved a deep understanding of the art market, artist relations and media partnerships. The logical next step was to focus on their agency efforts as consultants, advisers and business partner. What derives naturally from the business side of art is commerce. Widewalls functions as marketplace for buyers, sellers and traders of urban art.

DI$COUNT UNIVER$E

DI$COUNT UNIVER$E | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

DI$COUNT UNIVER$E is a Melbourne-based brand that combines art and eccentricity in the creation of a highly successful (and undeniably unique) fashion line. Enter their webpage and you cross the threshold from dull reality into a psychedelic circus full of fashionable madcaps donned in acid-bright garb. DI$COUNT founders, Nadia Napreychikov and Cami James, describe their aim at the crossroads of art and fashion:

“Culmination” and “spontaneity” are indeed the perfect words to describe DI$COUNT’s designs. The fabric is bestrewn with sequins, glitter, and studding, and the graphics include sparkling and bleeding eyeballs, open mouths, and disembodied, groping hands. Radiating with humor and seemingly random absurdity, the hyperbolic strangeness of these styles pokes fun at the highly conventional and artistically-vacant designs that dominate the popular fashion industry.

Both graduates of RMIT University, Napreychikov and James began the company “with little business experience, no capital and no intention of taking out a loan” . Their solution? To turn to the internet and foster a cult following using platforms such as Instagram, Tumblr, and their blog. This way, they were able to connect with other people who view fashion as a potential form of alternative art and social satire.

k2man | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

An Argentina-based artist who paints under the pseudonym k2man travels vicariously through her whimsically mysterious creatures. The artist’s work depicts a main character reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are as it adventures through forests and snowy landscapes.

On her website, she describes her collection of paintings and sketches as a mystical world populated by animals who are “fully aware of their own existence.” As the animals interact with humans — who appear very small in comparison — both parties display wonder and enchantment. Part of what makes k2man's work interesting is that she presents a consistent character across a variety of mediums. She says the existential question of “Where am I going?” is difficult to answer, but being an illustrator and breathing life into fictional characters in interesting settings helps her answer it.

Mike Rea

Mike Rea | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Mike Rea has conflated the notions of working hard and playing hard for over a decade with his bombastic wooden sculptures. Replicated and reinvented moments of cinematic horror, science fiction, comedy and drama intermingle with memory to form bizarre personal narratives. Over the years, each uncanny conglomeration of familiar objects and themes has both thrilled and confounded audiences. The delight in the experience of Mike Rea’s vision is the balance between a feeling of understanding that is quickly replaced by new, surprising discoveries. Whether as conventional sculptures standing alone, or as props in interactive installations and performances, these often-massive objects reflect a culture of humor, violence, vulgarity, and sensitivity.

Jacques Monory

Jacques Monory | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

is a French painter, living in Cachan.

Monory was one of the first painters of the French figuration narrative movement in the 1960s.

After painter decorator's training at the school of the Decorative arts of Paris, Jacques Monory works ten years at the art publisher Robert Delpire, where he is in touch with the universe of the photo.

He  is one of the main representatives of the movement of the narrative Representation which, in the middle of 1960s, opposed the abstract art with, in particular, the painters Hervé Télémaque, Err ó, Rancillac, Peter Klasen, Eduardo Arroyo, Valerio Adami and Gérard Fromanger.

Profoundly worried by the violence of the daily reality, the paintings of Monory suggest heavy and threatening atmospheres. The themes are developed through series and the images which he uses directly arise from the contemporary society. Photographic and film loans, the appeal to the monochromaticity, the coolness of the touch and the composition characterize a style singular and committed in the representation, and often bathe in monochrome one blue.

Pure Evil Gallery

Pure Evil Gallery | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
To understand a bit about Pure Evil it is illuminating to know that he is a descendant of Sir Thomas More, the Lord Chancellor who wrote the controversial work Utopia and who was later beheaded by King Henry VIII. With this busy background (Sir Thomas was later canonised) it is only natural that Pure Evil should explore the darker side of the wreckage of Utopian dreams and the myth of the Apocalypse, a belief in the life-changing event that brings history with all its conflicts to an end.
Pure Evils ancestry is alleged to include eight saints: Vladimir the Great, Saint Anna of Russia, the Holy Martyrs Boris and Gleb, Saint Stephen of Hungary, Saint Margaret of Scotland and Saint Mathilde together with Saint Thomas More, Humbert III of Savoy and several European royal families.He was also a descendant of the Old English Chieftain Ailric, Kings Thane to Edward the Confessor, who held Cawthorne and much of South Yorkshire before the Conquest.
